Greetings! We're back with another issue of Original Fuzz Magazine, just in time for your leisure weekend read. It's good, real good.
Inside you'll find the twenty-fifth episode of our podcast with special guest, our coverguy, Ron Gallo and the RG3! Listen as the guys walk you through songs that influenced their upcoming album, Heavy Meta, out on New West Records in February. Plus they play a couple of stripped-down songs.
Also inside, check out our conversation with Senior Editor T. Cole Rachel of The Creative Independent, a NYC-based website that publishes one inspiring interview a day with influential creators exploring topics reflecting their art and life. We've got a conversation with Nashville bluesman Patrick Sweany on his background and forthcoming album recorded at Sun Studios.
You can find another edition of our arts column FOUND with Sam Metzner, a North Carolinian who uses a historic and captivating process of art creating cyanotypes on ornate mirrors. And, there's a groovy history lesson on the explosion of African rock music in the 60s and 70s. Even more, you won't want to miss an underground look of the Philly music scene by grunge-punk quartet, Primatives.
Finally, we can't forget the most cheerful time of the season, that frenzied marketing push by corporate America to let us know that the holidays are quickly approaching. To celebrate, we've got a list of five holiday spirits to lift yours at your family gathering around the Thanksgiving table. Plus, another edition of Mark's Mailbag where Mark gives us his two cents on traditional fare.
